The Town of Manchester hosts a permanent electronics recycling program available at no charge to all Manchester residents. This program, authorized by the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection's E-Waste Recycling regulations, allows residents to recycle electronics during the normal business hours of the Town's Transfer Station. The Transfer Station is currently open Monday through Saturday, from 7:15 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. The Transfer Station is located at 311 Olcott Street . Residents must check in with town staff for instructions and will be directed to the appropriate electronics recycling containers. Currently, by state law the program does not cover businesses or other organizations; it is only for the collection of residential electronics.
Manchester residents may recycle up to seven (7) covered electronic devices at one time (per state law). Residents may also recycle an unlimited amount of non-covered electronic devices. Covered electronic devices are listed below. Non-covered electronics are in the list of acceptable items.
